    threeovens's Note:

    A colorful fish dish from Brazil. This recipe will work with sustainable fish like tilapia or turbot. Be sure to use coconut milk to achieve the proper thickness. Coconut water will be too thin and cream of coconut is too thick. Adapted from "The Brazilian Kitchen" by Leticia Moreinos Schwartz.

      Nice flavorful dish....the pepper topping really made the dish. I could not get the sauce to thicken much but it still turned out good. I actually found this recipe in the Washington Post ~ thanks for adding it here at the Zaar!!
